Orlando International stated it will be the 1st airport in the U.S. using facial recognition to process arriving and departing passengers. In less than 2 seconds with use of a tiny camera they can compare traveler’s photos with their Department of Homeland Security on file images processing travelers quickly and with 99% percent accuracy. Visa photos or Passports on file are used to compare to the traveler’s face helping to create a secure and seamless travel experience.
The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority and U.S. Customs & Border Protection joined together to create this program which was already being tested in Atlanta, Chicago O’Hare, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York JFK, San Diego, Washington Dulles and pre-clearance tested in Aruba, Abu Dhabi, and Ireland. By the end of 2019 the program will be fully operational at Orlando International Airport.
